3 Habits of Seriously Creative People (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 198)
“There is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost.”
— Martha Graham
Creativity is the responsibility of every individual. While some are more creative than others, everyone can open their minds to new ideas and insights. When presented with a problem, it sometimes takes a completely new approach that has never been used before. In every walk of life, creativity is the doorway to better solutions and improved understanding of the behavior and mindset of the human race.
Here are 3 habits of seriously creative people:
1. They challenge the status quo.
Seriously creative people don’t understand conformity. The word isn’t even in their vocabulary. It is their goal to challenge the norm, push boundaries, and try new things. For creative people, there is no box to begin with. But if there were, they always make the first move towards the exit.
2. They need their space.
Seriously creative people produce their best work when they are in their space. They are practically in love with their basement or condo or wherever it is they love to create. They are highly protective of their space and don’t like it when people invade the time they’ve dedicated to creating.
3. They have moods that swing from ying to yang in an instant.
A seriously creative person’s mood can change like the weather. One day they can be over-excited about something and the very next day they can be very despondent. Up and down, like a yo-yo. This is one of the important things to understand about creative types. And sometimes they won’t be able to tell you why they are feeling a certain way.
“There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns.”
— Edward de Bono
